Eurobowl & BIG6: Busy Weekend As Six More Teams See Action

BIG6: Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns v. Berlin Adler

In addition to the Big6 matchup between the Swarco Raiders and La Courneuve Flash, there is plenty more football action for German teams as the football season in Europe really picks up speed this weekend. In addition to the regular season openers in Germany four more GFL teams are in action.

But the Adler have undergone a major rebuild entering the 2015 season and are facing a Unicorns squad that is largely intact after a highly successful 2014 campaign.

Unicorn head coach Siegfried Gehrke is celebrating his 25th year as head coach of the high flying Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns and that kind of consistency and success will be tough to overcome for Berlin.
